Ellen revealed to The Real hosts that after she took a DNA test, she found out that was adopted. Loni Love asked her what it was like to find out she was an adoptee after so many years. “I was 49 when she told me, well I turned 50 in March. 49 years I never knew, now 50,” she confessed, as she reflected on the emotional journey.

Ellen was then asked what she would tell her sister if she met her for the first time. “I don't know. It is strange because I think if I could dream, like today is a whole dream like, yeah, all these years, I've known who I was raised with, but to find out that actually today I meet my actual blood is kind of like…” before she could respond, the Martin actress chimed in. “Would you be happy?” Tisha asked Ellen. “Yeah,” Ellen responded.

Tisha said, “Well, I know what I would tell my sister. I hope you like me. I'm your sister.” Tisha’s eyes welled up with tears and she smiled, and Ellen realized the gravity of her words. “I'm your sister,” she repeated as she pulled in Ellen for a tight hug.
